I am not sure if this is something to complete more tests with solid fuel rockets or not. Either way three successful tests will help the North Korea government feel more sure about themselves.
I thought I read where these were of the liquid fueled variety, which it old technology.
I do not think it really matters if it was liquid or solid rocket fueled the fact that they had three successful launches is what they were looking at. North Korea is having success while the South will be working on their defensive abilities in case the rockets are turned towards them in a provocative attack.
Yes, but liquid fueled is a much older and slower technology. Easy for us to counter before they launch. The fact they used that means they weren't being as aggressive.
Yes that is true. I think the North was using the older technology to get rid of old stuff as they continue to test their guidance systems.
That is actually a damn good theory. Using up the old stuff to work on their guidance systems. I didn't think about that. That could be axactly why they launched those missiles.
South Korea the first enemy of the North will be the worst off in all of this because they will be the principal place of attack for the North. Its not going to be pretty.
